HP Pavilion Wave is one of the desktops to support Amazon Alexa voice assistant. At CES in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Toyota announced the voice technology would be incorporated with the carmaker's infotainment systems.
People whose Toyotas come with the Entune 3.0 App Suite, like 2018 Camry and Sienna models, as well as Lexus owners whose auto runs the Enform App Suite 2.0, will be able to speak with Amazon's AI assistant this year. Lexus is the company's luxury brand.
The company says Alexa can help customers with thousands of things like giving directions, controlling entertainment, getting the news, adding items to a shopping list or even controlling their smart home while out and about on the road.
Voice-activated systems are becoming prevalent in new automobiles, either via manufacturers' own tech or through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
